A recently baptized mother of two shot and killed both her sons after they got off the school bus and walked into their house. She shot them both in the head, then she shot herself.
Just days after Esbeidi Sanchez received a baptism from her local church, the Florida mother of two shot shocked family and friends with the gruesome double murder-suicide killing her sons before turning the gun on herself.
The tragic event occurred at the family’s home in rural Jackson County , Florida on October 6, where authorities in Bascom say 25-year-old Esbeidi Sanchez executed her two young sons as they walked through the door at the end of the school day.
After killing Ronaldinio ‘Ronny’ Ramirez-Sanchez, 7 and critically injuring Gustavo ‘Angel’ Ramirez-Sanchez, 5, she used the gun on herself.
Her husband, Thomas Sanchez, came home after a day of working in the Panhandle cotton fields to discover the gruesome scene, frantically placing a call for help with local police, according to USA Today. 
‘Angel’ Ramirez-Sanchez was airlifted to a nearby hospital in Tallahassee, where he pronounced dead shortly after his arrival.
Pastor John Smith, head of the First Baptist Church in Malone, said the community is still in shock over the incident, struggling to reconcile with the events of last week.

‘Everybody’s flabbergasted,’ Smith said.  ‘She was a very beautiful lady and seemed like she had a real sweet personality. She didn’t indicate that anything was wrong whatsoever.’
Esbeidi Sanchez, pronounced “Es-Betty,” had no criminal record. Her immediate family had no history with Florida’s child welfare system.
However, records suggest there were problems at home growing up.
Esbeidi’s mother was granted a protection order against her father on March 7, 2005. He was charged the next day with sexual battery, but the charge was dismissed months later.
Before Esbeidi’s second son was born in 2011, she filed a domestic violence injunction against her father. In the petition, she wrote she felt she was in danger because her father “likes violence” and had a gun. She checked a box on the form saying her father had committed or threatened to commit domestic violence and that he’d threatened to kidnap or harm her child.
“He threatened my boyfriend and maybe me and my son,” she wrote.
Her request for an injunction, however, was denied.

Some of her friends and neighbors knew she’d had troubles with her father. But no one thought she was capable of violence herself.

Police said that Sanchez, 25, had left a suicide note, detailing the hardships in her life. She failed, however, to convey why she chose to take the lives of her young children.
‘The note that she left does indicate that this is what she wanted to do,’ said Capt. Scott Edwards of the Jackson County (Fla.) Sheriff’s Office.
‘Basically it was describing some incidents that occurred in her past that probably led up to this. It mentions the kids, but it doesn’t mention why she would do that to the kids. It’s probably one of the things we’ll never know.’
Shocked neighbors said Thomas Sanchez  ‘accepted it [ the tragic deaths of his family], but don’t understand it.’
Esbeidi Sanchez was said to be highly involved with her children’s studies and regularly attended church with Pastor Smith.
On October 1, she was baptized at her church, which was attended by her children and husband.

Teachers at her sons’ school were equally stunned over the news, who saw Esbeidi Sanchez as a caring parent.
‘Mama was very involved in the school,’ said Bryant Hardy, Malone Elementary assistant principal.
‘We loved their whole family. Two very sweet kids, always smiling. Every time I walked by them, they always had a hand stuck up in the air to give me high five. Everything was good to them. They were just good kids.’
